Brand new Yorkshire Motorsport Festival set to take place on June 25–27, with the north of England’s first-ever closed-road hillclimb taking centre stage

The Yorkshire Motorsport Festival is a brand new event set to be held in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire on Friday, June 25 to Sunday, June 27.

The Festival includes at its centre the Wolfstone Hillclimb, the first-ever hillclimb to be held on closed public roads in the north of England. The hillclimb will be fought over 0.8 miles of closed roads by a lineup of over 80 pre-1986 cars.

Other live action will include car stunts, Formula 1 demos and aerial displays, along with the less motorised Sheep theatre. Live music will kick in in the early evenings on each day.

Static displays will also feature, including vintage vehicles, rally cars, trucks, plant machinery, hot-rods, tractors, supercars and more. Elsewhere, a shopping village is joined by artisan food and drink stalls, plus a beach and fun fair area.

The festival was recently awarded Visit Britain’s ‘We’re Good To Go’ Covid-19 industry standard and consumer mark, meaning its planned coronavirus safety measures are up to scratch.

“We are delighted to have the full support of Kirklees Council and Motorsports UK and the green light to go ahead with the Festival,” said Michael McErlain, CEO of the Yorkshire Motorsport Festival. “This is something truly spectacular that people can look forward to in the near future, that combines the best of the country’s motorsport attractions with the bonus of family entertainment, all set in some of Yorkshire’s finest countryside.”
